YWCA of Rock County Child Care Program celebrates 25 years
The YWCA of Rock County Child Care Program is celebrating 25 years with an open house Wednesday night.
Director Lisa Peternel says when the program began in 1986, it had only one school and 12 students. Now the program cares for 700 students at 12 schools. Peternel says the program is vital to the communtiy and parents who may have few other options for childcare, before or after school.
The open house is planned from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the YWCA Services Center at 1735 S. Washington Street in Janesville.
